A Critical Examination Of Radioactive Dating Of Rocks
Sidney P. Clementson
Application of radioactive
dating methods to sedimentary rocks is here considered. The basic assumption
that radioactive disintegration starts when the minerals enter the host
rocks is shown to be unsubstantiated. Recent research on young rocks
discloses that disintegration in them is already at an advanced stage.
The conclusion reached is that the theoretical ages calculated from
isotope ratios are not the ages of the rocks, or of the earth but are
simply ratios of the minerals themselves which originated in the crust
of the earth.
The Structure And Fabric
Clifford L. Burdick, Hon.
This paper is not a complete
summary of Flood Geology. It is rather an answer to some of the more
common criticisms offered by such geological writers as Dr. J. R. van
de Fliert of the Netherlands, and others. Dr. van de Fliert has written
a critique of Flood Geology in the September, 1969 issue of the Journal
of the American Scientific Affiliation, under the title, "Fundamentalism
and the Fundamentals of Geology."
This present paper is written
to show that imagined differences between Uniformitarian Geology and
Flood Geology are based more on semantics than on actual evidence. The
chasm of separation was greater a century ago when Lyell was taken too
seriously. Now Uniformitarian geologists admit past periods of catastrophism,
and while Flood geologists have always recognized cataclysmic tectonic
events in the crust of the earth, including the Flood of Noah; they
also recognize that the major portion of geologic time was not so much
different from the present. However, Flood geologists contend that burial
of fossil life required catastrophism.
Although biologists look
to geology for evidence for organic evolution, according to the law
of superposition, some Flood geologists reason in a circle; for when
exceptions to the evolutionary order of fossils do occur, they are inclined
to doubt the physical evidence, rather than to trim the hypothesis to
fit the facts.
Attempts to age-date the
moon contend with the same difficulties that are encountered in radiometry
with rocks from the crust of the earth.
Evan V. Shute
Many resemblances between
animals and plants of different genera, families and orders defy evolutionary
explanation. There are both differences and similarities between creatures
of different kinds. The evolutionist must decide what features are useful
as true species criteria and what features are spurious or misleading.
A small but interesting sampling of strange similarities between widely
diverse living forms is given here, from a study of spinal tracts, ears,
placentae, electric organs, kidney function, fern vessels, milk, brown
fat, sweat glands, and other systems. It is asserted that these puzzling
resemblances are best explained by special creationism rather than by
Only God Could Have Made
The Defense Systems Of The Human Body
Oscar L. Brauer, Ph.D.
Belief in God is the greatest
need of the peoples of the world today. There are many things in biology
for which the evolutionists have no explanations. One of these, that
demands the infinite intelligence of God, is how the human body defends
itself against germs.
The skin, the tears, mucous
in the nose, the saliva, and digestive juices all contain antiseptics
Breaks in the skin are a
common place for germs to enter the body. One of our greatest defenders
are the leucocytes, which surround and kill germs. Another line of defense
involves the macrophages.
In addition to leucocytes
and macrophages, the human body opposes germs by antibodies. By means
of antibodies a person can gain immunity against germs.
Such wonderful defenses
for our bodies could not have come about by evolution. Only God could
